Editing PDF files in Word

Ever wonders how can you edit PDF in Word? Here is how:

A PDF file is a type of file that is designed to be viewable on any computer. It is useful when you want to send a document to someone and you’re not sure whether that person has Microsoft Word. PDF files are designed for viewing rather than editing, so they are ideal for situations where you have a final version that does not need any changes. However, if you need to edit a PDF file for any reason, Word 2013 allows you to edit it by converting it into a Word document.

Note: Converting a PDF file into a Word document may cause some graphics and content to look different or disappear altogether.

  • Open Word
  • Select the File tab.
  • Backstage view will appear. Click Open.
  • Locate and open the PDF file you want to edit.
  • A dialogue box will appear confirming whether you want to convert the PDF file into a Word document. Click OK.
  • If the PDF file has content that Word is unable to convert, another dialogue box may appear. Click OK. The PDF file will appear in the Word window as an editable document. You can now make any changes you want.
  • After editing, select the Save as command from the File tab.
  • The Save As dialogue box will appear. Select the location where you wish to save the document. If desired, enter a new file name.
  • Click the Save as type: drop-down box, then select a file type. You can choose to save the document as a Word Document or as a PDF file.
  • Click Save.
